What in the world?! This story is terrible. As reported by 4 CBS Denver, a passenger on a Frontier Airlines flight to South Carolina (from Denver) was moved from his seat during flight for “allegedly verbally and physically assaulted two other women near his previous seat.” It gets worse, after he moved seats he then ” allegedly urinated on the passenger’s seat in front of him.” Seems like this passenger should have been detained somehow and not allowed to continue to torment other passengers. How do you think Frontier Airlines handled this incident?
Passenger Allegedly Assaults Female Passengers And Urinates On Plane Seat
DENVER (CBS4) – Frontier Airlines says they are aware of a recent situation aboard a flight from Denver to South Carolina in which a passenger allegedly urinated on the passenger’s seat in front of him.
According to another passenger on the flight, the man, later identified in FBI documents as Michael Allen Haag, urinated on the seat in front of hers after being kicked out of his previous seat for inappropriate behavior.
The FBI told CBS4 that Haag has a Boulder address listed as his residence.
The passenger told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas she was sitting in the same row as Haag, across the aisle, when he unbuckled his seat belt and urinated on the back of the chair.
The woman said Haag was moved to the row she was in after he allegedly verbally and physically assaulted two other women near his previous seat. She also said Haag allegedly touched one sleeping female passenger and later asked another woman about her sexual and marital life.
The passenger said she was disappointed with the way the airline handled the incident, and was discouraged when Frontier flight attendants allegedly placed the suspect next to her. She said one flight attendant warned her of his previous actions, and told her to monitor his status. It was then when the passenger photographed Haag urinating on the seat.
According to the federal complaint, Haag had two double vodka tonics during the course of the flight and one passenger told authorities that he seemed “intoxicated and possibly high.”
The probable cause for his arrest, according to the FBI, is that Haag interfered with the flight crew, intimidated the flight attendant and engaged in inappropriate behavior, specifically touching, and disruptive behavior as well as indecent exposure of his genitalia.
What a nightmare to be on a flight with someone behaving this way. You can read the entire story in the article as well as see a video taken on board. Just terrible! What would you do if you were told by the flight attendant what the passenger had been accused of doing and he was placed next to you to “monitor?”
